Share this post

After some debate, the Lake County Council eventually agreed on a 112-thousand dollar annual salary for their new E-911 director, who'll be responsible for guiding the consolidation of Lake County's seventeen separate 911 systems by the end of 2014 –as mandated by state law – to prevent the county from losing millions in public safety dollars from the state. Lake County Commissioners named 50-year-old Brian Hitchcock of Davenport, Iowa, an E911 director for the Quad Cities area, to the position, pending the county council create a salary for him in the budget.  Hitchcock is a Minnesota native who helped guide consolidation of E-911 services for 30 public safety agencies in the Quad Cities area and elsewhere in the Midwest.
